Accident involving police officer a reminder for motorists to help reduce risk of Boston motorcycle accidents this fall

The officer was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.

Motorcycle riders will be out in large numbers through the upcoming Labor Day weekend and the remainder of the summer riding season. Also this weekend, the Massachusetts Motorcyclists Survivor’s Fund hosted Nelson’s Ride, an 11th Annual Event in memory of a 37-year-old Essex rider who was killed in a motorcycle accident after a teenage driver pulled out in front of his bike.

The memorial ride began in Gloucester and went through Manchester, Beverly, Wenham, Hamilton, Ipswich and Essex.

The accident resulted in 2004 Nelly’s Bill, which is a law aimed at motorcycle awareness programs in high school drivers education courses. The program reminds drivers to “Check Twice.”

That is advice we should all follow as riding season enters the final frenzied months of fall.
